Fletcher Cox gives back to Yazoo
By TAYLOR HAWKINS
On Saturday, Yazoo City High School was flooded with energetic, young football players to take part in the first ever NFL Play 60 sponsored Fletcher Cox Football Camp.
The camp was free for all kids between the ages of eight and 14. Over 200 kids signed up for the camp.
Yazoo City native Cox attended YCHS, where he was an All-State football selection. He was highly recruited by schools all around the country, including Alabama, Auburn and Ole Miss.
He ultimately decided to sign with the Bulldogs of Mississippi State University.
At MSU, Cox gained All-American recognition. He made the decision to forego his senior year at MSU after a successful junior year to enter the NFL Draft.
As a part of the NFL Play 60 initiative, Cox decided to bring some excitement to his home town.
